The Profractional Laser is an exciting new development for treating all skin types, without the risks of traditional resurfacing lasers. It is especially effective for:
– Acne scarring
– Pigmentation problems
– Fine lines and wrinkles
– Stretch marks
Traditional resurfacing lasers work by removing a microscopic layer of skin from the surface of the skin. The problem with this is that on many occasions, too much skin is removed which can cause pigmentation changes as well as a parchment-paper like appearance. The Profractional laser has eliminated this complication as the top layer of the skin is not removed. Instead, the Fraxel laser causes microscopic injuries to the skin which then stimulates regeneration and tightening of the skin surface.
Treatments are virtually painless with only redness and peeling in the recovery period.
